The pictures above show what I am referring to. I moved this panel from the middle of the northbound carriageway of Southport Road, Lydiate last Saturday morning following a very concerned call from a local resident who could not believe her eyes when she saw it there.
And no, it had not fallen off a lorry, it had been deliberately removed from the fencing of the adjacent electricity sub-station compound and put in the road! Goodness knows what would have happened had a motorbike struck it!
How could this have been done without the person or people doing it not realising they were setting a death trap? I despair!!!!!!
